There is enough potential that catches names for the new 2018 iPhone which can perhaps write a whole article just about that and this is going to be an important subject matter too.
Tell us what you think about this gadget anyway!
Release Date for the new iPhones
As per the media reports and expectations the successor(s) to the iPhones 8 and X to be unveiled and going to launches in this September 2018. This can be akin to a year post the iPhone 8 will be unveiled.
There will be a line up of the Apple’s usual habit of launching a new flagship iPhone that is going to unveil on this September.
Though, in 2017 the company didn’t unveil all of its new iPhones at the same time. The launch of the iPhone X arrives one month post the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
Whether this was due to delays or intentional isn’t completely clear.
The Apple can perhaps have seen some benefit from pent-up demand for the iPhone X, which can be sold more iPhone 8 handsets than it would have if the iPhone X had been available in the coming days.
This is very akin to the Apple struggled with component availability and the manufacturing issues.
There are no expectations that there will be a spread out launch for the new iPhone in this autumn of 2018, however.
KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo doesn’t think Apple can be being missing in the month of September and the launching date in 2018 is yet to declare!
Kuo said that the Apple’s will be the focus in 2018 that is to ensure that all the new models are ready to meet the same shipping date. Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus Images
“Achieving stable shipments and on-time shipping,” he said in a research note to clients in the month of October on the last year.
How many new iPhones will Apple launch?
Initially reports showcase that the three new iPhones can be declared in the autumn of 2018, but further reports appeared in Jan 2018 suggesting that Apple is lining up four new models for the autumn. (We expect that the iPhone SE 2 will appear in spring.)
First up, in Nov 2017 Ming-Chi Kuo predicted and said that three new models are all set to come in this autumn 2018 and that this gadget will be going to sporting the same all-screen design with the now-familiar notch.
In this January he followed up with more details of each model. As illustrated below, that’s:
* 5.8in OLED: iPhone 11 or XI, with largely same design as iPhone X
* 6.5in OLED: iPhone X Plus or XI Plus
* 6.1in LCD: a cheaper alternative – starting at around $700 – with the notch design of the X but slightly larger bezels.
This is going to be feature Face ID but not 3D Touch and won’t have twin camera lenses on the rear that is making headlines.
Kuo eventually predicted that this model could sell 100 million units in the whole globe. Hasselblad 400-Megapixel Camera

In Dec 2017, Nikkei, citing “a source privy to the company’s product designs”, stated that as per the expectation there will be two new OLED models, in 6.3in and 5.8in sizes, and an LCD phone measuring 6.1in. That’s:
* 6.3in OLED
* 5.8in OLED
* 6.1in LCD
But as per the reports published in the media portal DigiTimes Research senior analyst Luke Lin in Jan 2018, said that there will be four new iPhones:
* 5.7- to 5.8in LCD
* 6.0- to 6.1in LCD
* 6.0- to 6.1in OLED
* 6.4- to 6.5in OLED
The death of the iPhone X
An astounding rumor, which that is already going rounds in January 2018, holds that Apple is all set to end production of the iPhone X post only a year on the market.
This appears to have been flickering by analyst Jun Zhang of Rosenblatt Securities making the markedly less controversial prediction that the company “may be planning to cut iPhone X production for the June quarter by as much as 10 million units”.
To us it seems to appear as the Apple would simply be ramping down production which can seem like the less of a hyped product, that can be focusing instead on making the new phones for autumn 2018 – which as discussed above could encompass the launch of three (or four) separate form factors.
If it’s diversifying its product portfolio that much, Apple can withdraw its current products from the sale than usual, which can be assumed as the end of the iPhone X.
But for any damn company to sell a smartphone for only a year (rather than keeping it on sale when the successor arrives, but dropping the price) would be both unusual and surprising.
